Synopsis

Calling all ocean lovers! The annual Ocean Film Festival is sweeping towards Keswick with a brand new selection of the world’s most amazing ocean films, from both above and below the surface.

Brought to you by the team behind the Banff Film Festival UK Tour, this collection of short films celebrates divers, paddlers, surfers and oceanographers who live for the sea’s salt spray. Be wowed at mind blowing marine life; exhilarated by the power of the waves, and inspired by the characters who dedicate their lives to answering the call of the ocean.

The 2017 film programme sees intrepid freedivers explore haunting shipwrecks, nomadic sailors face the icy waters of Antarctica, and features awe-inspiring marine life such as humpback wales and the endangered Giant Pacific Mantaray.

The 2017 programme:

Fish People
To some, the ocean is a fearsome place. But to others, it’s a limitless world of fun, freedom and op-portunity where life can be lived to the full. Fishpeople tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea.

Haven
Follow world freediving champion Guillaume Néry and his fellow freedivers into the depths as they explore Haven , the largest shipwreck in the Mediterranean.

The Legacy
A 5 minute short exploring the spell-binding setting of the Revillagigedo Islands, where the ocean's biodiversity, and our hope, is not yet lost.

Sea Gypsies
The extraordinary voyage of the Infinity and her crew: 8,000 miles from New Zealand to Patagonia, taking in the intimidating iceberg-strewn waters of Antarctica along the way. A story of sailing and a glimpse into a lifestyle beyond the norm.

Stay With Us
The search for extra-terrestrial life has always fascinated humans, as we look to the darkness above and imagine what sort of alien beings share our universe. Stay With Us suggests that maybe we’ve been looking in the wrong place – and introduces creatures far stranger than those we can dream up for sci-fi films...

Whale Chasers
Sitting high on a rugged hilltop looking out over New Zealand’s Cook Strait, an unusual team of ‘citizen scientists’ keeps watch for migrating humpback whales. These volunteers are unique: not only are they descendants of New Zealand’s 200-year history of whaling, they were all once whalers themselves...
